>>. >> bret: finally tonight the folks at buzz feed thought it would be funny to combine the faces of 32 cable news anchors including me to see if what would happen. this is the result. buzz feed says, quote the average host is pretty white man wearing lipstick. [ laughter ] >> bret: we thought we could do
4:01pm
better with the features. jonas, chuck and charles and myself true fox news al star. fair and balanced. >> but no lipstick. >> bret: one last thing, a personal the snow. i talked about my wife and kids on the show but never my little brother, tim bair, he is eight years younger but he is they are running in washington, d.c. in half marathon. few minutes a ago, tim got on his knee in front of the lincoln memorial and asked for her hand in marriage and with picture i have confirmation, she said yes. >> thank god for that. [ laughter ] >> bret: this kid would not have been the same. congratulations and it's great to know that sequester did not
4:02pm
prevent that in front o the lincoln memorial. fair and balanced and unafraid. make it a great weekend. this is fox report. tonight the state department getting on the record finally about american survivors from the attack on our people in benghazi. and pictures coming into fox news, a plane hits a car in a building and it was deadly and pentagon making moves in response to the latest north korean threat. >> american people expect us to take every necessary step to protect our security at home. >> after the communist regime threatened all out war and prompted to preemptive nuclear strike on the u.s. mainland, more than a dozen new missile
4:03pm
interceptors now set to deploy in alaska, major developments in the military standoff with north korea. plus, carnival cruise ship catastrophe, another one since yesterday. carnival legend limping back to tampa one day after the dream broke down in the caribbean and month after the triumph debacle. damage control on the high seas. and... the woman who admits to shooting her boyfriend and stabbing him 27 times and cutting his throat as you have never seen her before. how jodi arias passed the time in a police interrogation room. >> i'm in for shepard smith. a threat of nuclear attack is growing faster than we expected,
4:04pm
pentagon officials is beefing up america's missile system. chuck hagel says they are adding 15 new ground base missiles in alaska. that is increase of 50%. >> we will maintain our commitments to our allies and partners and make clear to the world that the united states stands firm against aggression. >> they successfully launched a long-range missile in december and has threatened a preemptive nuclear attack on the united states. after today's announcement from the pentagon one u.s. commander said of kim jong un the young lad oblgtd to be deterred. this is also about iran? >> that is right. officials say they will explore through new sites for ground based intercepters. the u.s. is planning to deploy a new radar in japan for early warning and tracking all to
4:05pm
counter a quickly growing threat. >> today i'm nfg a series of steps the united states will take to stay ahead of challenge posed by iran and north korea on longer range missile capabilities. >> the plan is to have everything in place by 2017. >> we're also starting to get reaction from capitol hill and some critics. >> reporter: that is right. we told you so by critic. as for congress, a senator calls it a step in the right direction. a senator from alaska is pleased that putting his home state on the map. he says the obama administration should have known sooner. >> they misdiagnosed what was happening in the region in terms of what heavily sanctioned country determined to acquire these capabilities could do.
4:06pm
one silver lining at this point is perhaps missile defense has bipartisan support. >> reporter: earlier reaction shows it's bipartisan but there are serious budget issues in washington these days. >> no doubt about that. thank you very much. it's important to keep in mind, north korea spends an enormous amount of the budget on its military while two-thirds of the country has trouble finding food to eat. the report claims that children have been caused stunted growth. just 50 years ago, south korea was as poor as the north but five decades after it embraced democracy the south one of the most prosperous nations on earth. new gun control bills could soon become law in where movie theater massacre happened.
4:07pm
they set a limit of 15 rounds per magazine. they expect colorado's governor to sign the law back in two weeks. back in july a gunman opened fire in a crowded movie theater killing 12 people and wounding dozens more. >> to wall street. we knew it couldn't last forever. dow's longest winning streak is now, well, over. longer than any other in 16 years. it ended down 25 points, first time in 11 sessions but it did not finish in the green. it also hit new records highs for closing, of course, it's not all bad news for people fortunate enough to have a 401-k. when traders celebrated breaking the 14,000 mark, now it is holding steady 500 points higher than that and all this in the past four weeks. even though the s&p 500 lost a
4:08pm
control of points but it's still in record territory. you can see it here a few points from hitting that all time high. shabani is joining me now. the rally stopped in its tracks, why? >> it did. as we all know, sometimes all good things must come to an end. the ten day winning streak being stopped short by a 25-point loss ended with a whimper and not a bang. 25 points is not much in the grand scheme of losses on the dow. it did cut short a nice long ride that investors were hoping to keep longer, another day, another week. the biggest losers on the dow, there were 19 of the top 30 dow stocks in the red. the biggest looser was j.p. morgan. house homeland names like proctor gamble also saw a pull back today and home depot. the attack on wall talk is it
4:09pm
buying opportunity or more of a pull back? some of the experts i talked to this may not be the best time to buy in to this pullback. the big reason, usually when we see run-ups like this you wanted to buy to see a bull back and numbers are backed up by corporate profits and bond buying which is the juice of the markets is eventually going to end. don't fight the tape, when markets go hire. >> go long with your investment. as we look at this, they are quite different. s&p 500 as closely hit a record but can't seem to reach it. >> that is very important for market watchers and technicians because the s&p 500 is more important index to traderse it'0 different companies. it gives us a better sense of what is happening with the economy. this index has yet to reach a record high. that is one of the reasons that people of skeptical about this
4:10pm
rally. when we start to see this specific index reaching to new territory, that is when we think we'll get a little more conviction about where we're going next. >> this mostly touches people fortunate to have retirement funds, but this next point touches everybody. word pretty much on everything we buy is on the rise? >> biggest increase we have seen in consumer prices in three to four years. so many americans are dealing with smaller paychecks because of the payroll tax cut and with what you have left you are shelling out more money to buy the things you need every day. specifically gasoline prices on the rise, consumer places up .07% in the month of february driven by a 9% rise in gasoline prices. this pretty much explains a big reason why everyday americans aren't participating in this market rally when you are not able to have extra money in your pocket because you are spending out groceries and food you
4:11pm
aren't buying shares of apple anytime soon. wife of a u.s. pastor locked up iran tearfully pleading for help. her husband is one of the notorious prison because he is christian. his wife said, she is disappointed with the state department to for not doing more. she did meet with state department officials but the family's attorney they want john kerry to be personally involved. the pastor is iranian american. the government threw him in prison for preaching the gospel. his wife telling lawmakers about how she had to explain to her children what happened to their dad. >> i couldn't explain to them why that he was physically taken to prison. finally they kept saying, does daddy not love us anymore? does daddy not love us... i have to tell them that he was in
4:12pm
prison because he loved jesus. meanwhile, the family's attorney slamming the state department for not even sending a represented i have to that meeting. a sentiment echoed by the cochairman, virginia republican congressman frank wolfe. >> i was amazing a hearing to highlight the plight of religious minority not to mention imprisonment of an american citizen was not deemed important enough to cooperate with congress. >> we were told that secretary kerry was expected to talk to him about the situation. investigators at the scene of the plane that turned into a fireball saying it incinerated everything it hit. just ahead what we're learning about moments before the fiery impact. there is car and parked boat in that molten mess and people died

4:34pm
some are working for the government and some are still injured. bottom line they feel they cannot come forth. they have been told to be quiet. >> reporter: they raised the issue with the white house press secretary. >> is this white house preventing those survivors from speaking publicly or asking them not to? >> first of all, i have no knowledge of this story. secondly, i'm sure that white house has not prevented anyone from speaking. >> reporter: we asked the state department if they will give congress the list of names but no immediate response. >> harris: syrian civil war that has forced a million people from their homes and killed more than 70,000 hit the two-year mark today. on this day in 2011 they first started calling for the fall of syrian leader assad. soldiers tortured teenagers for

4:36pm
delays enough is enough. >> i spoke with the president yesterday. he says, well, he is still maybe going to take the balance of this year to make a decision. we put bipartisan legislation forward. we've got a lot of support for it. it's to get the project going. >> no decision has been made on keystone. i think the president, i expect he was clear about that as he has been. that process over the state department is moving forward and will end in a decision. >> harris: meanwhile, president obama called on congress to approve new responding research into clean energy technology a plan he said would not add to the deficit. ed henry is live at the white house. ed, how would the president actually pay for this? >> reporter: good evening. he was an argon national laboratory in his home state of illinois. the president says he wants to pay for $2 billion green energy fund by taking government

4:40pm
that any speaker. he lost and party made mistakes but it's time to move on and get moving forward. >> it's fashionable in some circles to be pessimistic about america, about conservative solutions, about the republican party. i utterly reject pessimism. [ applause ] >> we may not have carried on november 7th but we haven't lost the country we loved and we have not lost our way. >> reporter: komz and the republican party took a lot of heat for not doing enough to win the election to minorities and women. there has been a lot of talk about that and running mate, paul ryan says it's really not helpful to talk but republicans should be doing to actually meeting people to court them. listen. >> we can't just talk about these communities. we have to talk about with them.
4:41pm
we have to engage them because leaders, leaders don't just speak up. they listen too. >> reporter: ryan as the party's former vice president nominee. he insists he is not thinking about running in 2016 but he has tremendous amount of work to do. it will be a lost attention and with it a lot of scrutiny which could make it both a lot of attention and harder to run for office for the presidency. >> harris: we see the speaking continues. in a couple of hours. big headliner for tonight. >> reporter: jeb bush, former florida governor will be speaking tonight. he has for years said he is not the slightest bit interested in running for president. couple weeks ago, that all changed. he quite dramatically he is no longer saying no, but this is the 2013 conservative political action conference.
4:42pm
all of the major speakers are folks who are known to be considering presidential run. today, jeb bush actually asked his name to be taken off the straw poll ballot. they are voting who would be the best 2016 nominee. he says it's too early to be talking about it but that big whole part of the conversation of the conference for the last day and a half. >> harris: that is interesting. take your name off the straw poll. our old friend blogger has been in prison for one year now. now that his flying days are over, what is he doing behind bars? we return to planet blago coming up. and casinos generated huge amounts of tax dollars but in atlantic city, new jersey, poke tables and roulette wheels are not as crowded as they used to be. that is hurting the entire state. the economy of gambling and live
